Lauren Utter was a contestant during Cycle 10 of ANTM.
Lauren Utter was a 22-year-old artist from Brooklyn, New York. Standing 6’0″ tall, Lauren was Cycle 10‘s tallest contestant. Lauren seemed uncomfortable and awkward in her modeling skin at the beginning of the competition, but began becoming more confident, leading her to progress as a contestant. She was complimented during her go-sees challenges, but was told by designers that she seemed uncomfortable.
Lauren was also documented on the show for siding with Claire during an argument about Dominique’s alarm clock going off at early hours. Lauren also joined Whitney and Claire while choosing to badmouth Dominique while Dominique was present in the room.
During the 9th episode, Lauren accidentally cut her thumb while chopping onions. The wound was so severe that she had to get it stitched. Luckily, that same week, Lauren was voted CoverGirl of the Week by viewers.
After making it to the final six, Lauren and the other girls traveled to Italy. Lauren made it clear that she felt she didn’t fit in with the rest of the girls or the style of the city. As documented by the show, she spent much of her time moping around and slamming things around the apartment. While in Italy, the girls filmed a 30-second Cover Girl commercial in Italian, but Lauren spoke at an inaudible volume and looked miserable the entire time. Her commercial was deemed the worst of the group and was the eighth model to be eliminated from America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 10.
Since the show, Lauren has done some test shoots and starred in Modelville, which she later quit. She modeled for Pomp and Circumstance magazine, Thorn and Class Struggle. She also appeared in the season finale on the sixth season of Project Runway.
Lauren Utter is currently signed to VIP Stars Models in New York.
